Considering its importance, it is surprising to learn that historically the borough of Greenwich was poorly served by cinemas.The Trafalgar Cinema opened on 26 December 1912. A small classical building, it served Greenwich until 30 September 1937 when it was joined by the far larger Granada, a typically lavish ‘30s super-cinema. These two flourished until the 1950s when all cinemas fell victim to the success of television and audiences fell dramatically. The Trafalgar, which had become an Odeon in 1945, was the first to close and it became a car showroom in 1960, finally being demolished in 1998.
The Granada closed in 1968 to become a bingo hall and was recently gutted for conversion into residential use. The neighbouring towns of Deptford, Lewisham and Woolwich all had far superior cinemas, some of which survive with listed status (Woolwich Granada – now a bingo hall, Woolwich Odeon – now a church) but most have sadly been demolished, including the spectacular art-deco Odeon at Deptford and the lavish Gaumont in Lewisham.
In something of a turn-around, Greenwich is now the best-served of these locations in terms of its cinemas.
In the multiplex building boom of the 1980s, when most developments were in out-of-town locations, Greenwich was unique in having a council-funded development in the town centre. The Greenwich Cinema was a modern purpose- built three-screen cinema designed by Howard and Unick. Opening in 1989, the cinema was an instant success and continued to do solid business until out-of-town multiplex competition opened nearby. The cinema closed in 2002.
City Screen, the UK’s leading independent cinema operator which runs some of London’s most cherished cinemas including the Ritzy, the Gate and the Clapham and Stratford Picturehouses, stepped in to rescue the building and transformed it into a five-screen venue, including a flexible basement screening area with its own lounge bar (which also hosts music and comedy events), a bar and two restaurants. The architects for the conversion were Panter Hudspith who have previously worked with City Screen to create award-winning cinemas.

Limelight is the annual short film competition, followed by a red carpet Oscar style awards ceremony attended by hundreds of film makers and personalities from the film, TV and media industry.
Our purpose is to promote, celebrate and recognise film makers through our annual awards, with this in mind we hope to offer film educational opportunities, as well as our Production award to further support film makers. This is now recognised and supported by many film organisations, government and educational institutions, media agencies and celebrities.
With many new creative and artistic movements, countless of the young and upcoming talents go unnoticed. They desperately lack a platform where they can show of their artistic skills, whether it be film making, dance, music or art.
Since 2007 our aim has not only been to offer a platform for national and international recognition through the awards but also to support ongoing film making efforts through networking, production facilities and workshops.
Limelight is managed by Spotlight UK in partnership with Canary Wharf Group PLC and is now recognised and supported by national and global organisations, including Film London, Avid, The Community Channel and many others, including personalities from the Film and Media industry.

Cookeatandparty is a Greenwich Pantry brand providing a number of food related services including private catering, food delivery, online retailing and cookery classes. Classes take place in home kitchens and venues across South London.
Each Cook and eat session has its character and characters. Curious, lively people who love cooking, eating, making good conversation at the table - our kind of people.
Chopping, slicing, mixing, and sometimes crafting through the chitter chatter. Cooing over colourful vegetables, a comforting backdrop as participants learn to make homely, heartwarming dishes.
We debate the vices and virtues of cooking from scratch with fresh ingredients or buying ready meals to save time and money. Around the table, there's lots to talk about.
We don't quite get to put the world at ease about its food conundrums because as the aroma and smells of food hits home, tastebuds are prepped and rhythmic munching takes over.
With stomachs filled, everyone leaves satisfied but of course, someone gets the washing up:-)
Our sessions are perfect as gifts for foodies and everyone with a keen sense of discovery including absolute beginners who want to learn the basics of eating well and cooking good food in a relaxed setting.
See you there!
